    Some of my friends have been to Thailand and have said that the Sangsom buckets are the most popular. What exactly is in these?

    • The Sangsom bucket has been popularised on the island of Koh Phangan during the full moon parties, but can be purchased almost everywhere. It’s a small ice-cream bucket filled with ice, a small bottle, or a mickey, of Sangsom, Red Bull and Coke. And just in case you’re wondering how people make it through from the start of the day until the finish, or the next day for that matter, you’re simply going to have to try one yourself.
